Project Planning – Developing the Project Plan

Customer Question

Hi! This assignment is due on 9/17.


Project Planning – Developing the Project Plan and Determining Critical Path


1.Using the District4WarehouseMove WBS.xls provided, https://app.box.com/s/mfy2evpl8vkaj893nheo create a Microsoft project plan for the District 4 Warehouse Move project. Use the PDF document, Project Plan Check –District4Move, https://app.box.com/s/3xacmbsul93k92ewixga to check your work to be sure you have created your starting project plan correctly. Microsoft Project is required for this task.


Note: you will need to insert a column to include your WBS codes, then you will need to sequence the tasks to show tasks by work package. It may help to review the Microsoft tutorial, Sequencing tasks in a project: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/project-help/CH010066652.aspx


2.Based upon the details in the WBS and the project case, determine which tasks need to be completed first and which tasks are dependent upon other tasks to be completed prior to starting. Using this information identify predecessors in your project plan’s predecessor column. Complete the predecessor column by entering the line number of tasks that must be completed in order for each task to start. This will create your project timeline.


Note: This is a critical step in the process to developing your critical path. It may help to review the Microsoft tutorial, Creating relationships between tasks: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/project-help/CH010066658.aspx


3.Using the View Network Diagram functionality within MS Project, determine the critical path for this project. In a MS Word document, list the activities that are on the critical path. Considering the risks identified in the risk table below, identify which risks would be most likely to increase your project timeline. Justify your responses.


Submit both your completed project plan and your MS Word document.


District 4 Production Warehouse Move Project - Risk Table


1.) Permits are not received per the schedule


2.) Finish work contractors walk off the job half way through


3.) Framing and drywall contractors are running behind schedule and can only produce half their crew as scheduled


4.) Work benches are poor quality and 1/3 will have to be rebuilt

Hi, I’m Josie a moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still needing assistance from an other one of our professionals?

Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question.

Also remember that JustAnswer has a multitude of categories to help you with all your needs from Pet to Legal.
